On the Sunday ON THE BUSES fans with Gold tickets joined the Routemaster bus again (owned by Sullivan Buses) for a Elstree Film and TV Heritage tour..
On the bus tour we visited many film and TV locations used locally during the last 99 YEARS of output by film and TV studios (including more ON THE BUSES film locations).The studios in the region created some classic and iconic programmes seen on the small and big screen. It was also a great social event where ON THE BUSES fans got to meet some of the local residence on board with us, who were also enjoying the tour.
Well done to Paul Welsh, Bob Redman, Dean and Steve at Sullivan Buses and all those who helped make this a good day out for all.

Our tour bus parked up in front of ELSTREE STUDIOS,
Nice to see the number 11 bus back at the studios where the 3 ON THE BUSES movies were made.

One of the highlights off the day was that on the return from a walking tour at ELSTREE STUDIOS we were greeted by some of the characters from the 'STAR WARS' movies

With the DVD release of The Elstree Story just around the corner, we invited the guys over at Elstree to give you a brief introduction to what can be expected.

By the early 1950’s the studio had been home to many silent films as well as Hitchcock’s Blackmail (the first British “talkie”) and lavish musicals starring Richard Tauber. It had recently completed The Hasty Heart with Richard Todd and future American President Ronald Reagan. Conceived by Gilbert Gunn and introduced by Richard Todd (soon to star in The Dam Busters), The Elstree Story was planned as a tribute to the first 25 years of the studio.
The story of Elstree goes back to the silent era, a magnificent legacy. Outside of Hollywood, no town in the world has boasted as many film studios or as great a list of productions as Elstree and Borehamwood. It would be a tragedy for that to be forgotten, to be passed over by history
